Patience is a virtue that is much needed in the society and culture that you live in. People want everything to be instant. This is not how I want My people to respond to life. You must represent Me and My Kingdom way of doing things. You must listen for My voice for there is a time and a season for everything under the sun.
Sometimes I am wanting to release mercy towards others through you. Are you willing to let go of your agenda and let Me have My way? For you are to be a model of servanthood, giving up your own rights in order to accomplish My purposes. Turn to Me and ask what I am doing in a situation. Then ask Me for grace to endure with patience and longsuffering.
Be patient, for surely you can do all things through Christ who gives you strength to overcome. Always remember that patience is a fruit of the Spirit which develops in a yielded life that is committed to love.
Ecclesiastes 7:8 Amplified Bible (AMP)
The end of a matter is better than its beginning;
Patience of spirit is better than haughtiness of spirit (pride).
1 Corinthians 13:4 Amplified Bible (AMP)
Love endures with patience and serenity, love is kind and thoughtful, and is not jealous or envious; love does not brag and is not proud or arrogant.
Philippians 4:5 Amplified Bible (AMP)
Let your gentle spirit [your graciousness, unselfishness, mercy, tolerance, and patience] be known to all people. The Lord is near.
2 Thessalonians 3:5 Amplified Bible (AMP)
May the Lord direct your hearts into the love of God and into the steadfastness and patience of Christ.
Hebrews 10:36 Amplified Bible (AMP)
For you have need of patient endurance [to bear up under difficult circumstances without compromising], so that when you have carried out the will of God, you may receive and enjoy to the full what is promised.
